    Default Video playback stutters on note 3

    I've seen someone mentioning the same problem. Is my note 3 a lemon? Video playback is lagging worst than the snapdragon 600. Current on the att version note 3.

    All of a sudden I have started having the same problem. ..not sure of why. If I click play on a video on Facebook or any video in any other app it's hesitant and I have to press play a few times....If it even decides to play. Frustrating

    Da NOTE 3!

    This. I turned it off and the stuttering stopped. It's a good idea, but maybe stability is a few software revs away.

    Seems to happen exclusively to HD videos. I think playback has improved on mine, though.

    mine has stated to stutter every 5-6 sec during video play back. It doesnt matter if the source is youtube/local/network they all stutter slighty every 5-6 seconds. Has anyone found a fix for this? I even factory reset my note 3 ATT and the stutter is still there.

    update: i think i may have found a fix to the video stuttering problem. In developer options you have to enable the setting "FORCE GPU RENDERING". Once you have done that everything is buttery smooth. i tested videos from sources such as Youtube (using original stock app, no updates), PLEX via LTE and network. And large mkv local files 720p and 1080p with MX player free. Everything seems good so far.

    to the people that have issues try it out and report back!

    Good luck all.

    Hi All,
    I'm having a similar problem with my new note 3 which is a little annoying!
    Video stored on the phone seems to work fine, but if I'm streaming then it stutters every few seconds. It's not the data connection as even if I let it download it all before I play it, I still get the problem. I wasn't sure if it was a problem with the videos embedded in the stock browser so I've tried Chrome as well but with the same issue.

    So far I've tried the suggestions in this thread and also tried MX Player instead of the stock app but with no luck.

    I've also noticed a slight 'jerkyness' even when navigating through my app list or between home screens. It's like it doesn't register the first 5mm of my finger (or s-pen) movement and then jumps to catch up. It's nothing major, but I was expecting it to glide nicely! I've upgraded from an HTC OneX and I didn't have these issues on that using the same wifi etc.

    Any advice would be appreciated!

    Stock kernel? I haven't used the stock kernel much. I haven't had any trouble with lean kernel or faux kernel with any type of video streaming. 1080 or otherwise.

    Thanks

    Go to Settings/About phone..
    click on the Build Information panel several times until a pop-up comes stating that you are a Developer or something.
    Go back out, now there should be a new option above the About phone called 'Developer Options'.

    New to android. But this sounds like it's forcing the graphics chip to run full speed at all times.
    Correct me if I'm wrong haha

    Would this impact battery life?

    I have now tried this setting and youtube still has moments with hd video where it skips a couple of frames to catch up.
    Very hard to watch with fast paced music video etc.
    This is after 2 youtube updates in the play store and trying this "force gpu" setting.
    Any other ideas?

    I think that sounds right and can't be a good long term solution.

    It was my smart screen setting. Settings, display, smart screen. Turn off smart stay and smart pause. Video plays perfect now.

    That stuff is already off.
    Wonder if I have a faulty one?
    It plays games and other media fine though. Just youtube skips on HD only.
    😭

    you are not the only one I have similar issue

    video (especially HD) content played "streamed", Netflix, Sky Go etc - and I get stutter/video lags/catchups

    yet local content - even at high bitrate 1080p, and Sky Go "downloaded" content - seems to be smooth as silk

    so on my Note 3 it seems to not like decoding video at same time as receiving data via wifi etc

    chipset limitation ? firmware issue ?

    Guys -

    I am experiencing the same issue and it's obviously frustrating to say the least.

    Firstly, play-back lags/stutters when I have filmed something (and it also lags like hell on my macbook pro once I've transferred files to there)
    Secondly, when playing youtube videos via the pre-installed youtube app, regardless of connection being solid (Wifi/ H+ etc) the video will stop playing as if to suggest it is buffering still - even though I am playing via a superb wifi connection.

    I have restored the phone many times and I don't have that much memory in use - nor am I using extenstion memory cards.

    On my Galaxy Tab S, if I turn off video stabilization(in settings when using camera), all the choppiness instantly goes away. This is only for videos I am recording. All my previous videos were filled with stuttering.
